Remember to carry some poop bags if you’re taking Fido along; you need to do your part to maintain the scenic beauty of the area.
The Woods Canyon Lake is around 3 miles out on Road 105, offering nice fishing and boating options. There is a Marina Store at Woods Canyon Lake where you can get groceries.
